Travel travails

Personally I think really sorry for people who have lost fares and deposits into the of late unsuccessful travel agencies (NZ Herald, January 21). I worked within the travel industry through the 60s to your 90s and I also can guarantee you there have been a great amount of travel business problems, with associated client financial losings in that time. Most of these problems had been travel agents running away from Travel Agents Assn of NZ (TAANZ). TAANZ has training that is professional safety demands and bonding which covers clients against losings because of a travel agents’ failure. Companies running outside TAANZ had been often dealing on ethnicity, faith or any other such specialty to attract their clients. The rely upon such unqualified, un-bonded agents is frequently misplaced. Due diligence because of the client to determine the bona fide of these travel agency is crucial. TAANZ account is an excellent starting place. Bill Boyle, Orewa.

Forfeit and prosecute

The directors and shareholders, present and past associated with travel agent purported to have printed fraudulent travel seats must have each of their assets, including their property, seized by the Crown. The Ministry of Justice should prosecute them for printing fraudulent travel papers, along with learning what printing company/persons were in charge of the publishing and prosecute them besides. The directors must have to settle all customers they usually have taken cash from, by attempting to sell their assets, such as for instance fluid money, vehicles and home after sorting away how much had been taken and never useful for the intended travel usage. The Ministry of Justice along with other ministries usually do not appear to desire justice for the individuals, by firmly taking instances such as these and prosecuting them, but just them or does not pay the appropriates taxes to them.
